DIY Floral Bath Salts using dried flowers and epsom salt is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy a warm bath.
If you haven’t noticed, I love making my own bath products. Bath salts, bath bombs, scrubs, milk baths, you name it – I’ve tried it!
It’s actually pretty funny because I don’t take baths all that often. As you would imagine, my house is full of bombs, scrubs, and salt soaks that sit around for ages before I actually get around to using them. Honestly, I think I almost enjoy making homemade self-care products more than I enjoy using them.
Yeah, I know. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
However, I have to try them out at least once before posting, which is why it takes me so long to get blog posts together from start to finish. And this one is definitely one of my top faves!
If you’ve never experienced a hot bath with floral bath salts, you’re missing out. As much as I love my oatmeal milk bath recipe, I think I enjoyed this one more. I will say though, this definitely was messier. To be fair, I didn’t grind up the dried flowers. If you do that, it should cut down on the cleanup time.

DIY Floral Bath Salts
Ingredients For Homemade Floral Bath Salts:
- 1 cup Epsom Salt
- Various Dried or Fresh Flowers (I bought this set)
- Glass Containers/Mason Jars
- Optional: 5-10 drops Essential Oils of your choice
How To Make DIY Floral Bath Salts:
1. Add Epsom Salt To A Big Bowl
2. Grind The Dried Flowers In A Small Blender
(Obviously, I didn’t do this… I don’t mind cleaning the mess left in the tub.)
3. Mix The Flowers In With The Epsom Salt
4. Optional: Add Essential Oils and Mix
5. Store In Airtight Containers
Yup, it really is as easy as that!
These would make adorable wedding favors, or bridesmaids gifts! I don’t know why, but my mind instantly goes to “wedding” when I see these. Probably the variety of different flowers and beautiful, fresh scent.
The best part about this DIY is that it’s so simple. Bath bombs are great and all, but they certainly take more time than a cute jar full of flowers and epsom salt.
Occasionally I receive questions from people making my DIY’s in bulk, asking about ratios so they can figure out the cost to provide small gifts for a large group of people. Sometimes I’m of help, and other times – not so much.
Thankfully, with this recipe, there isn’t much to say! Eyeball it! Most of the recipe is comprised of epsom salt with some flowers thrown in. It doesn’t get much more simple than that. And yes – it should be pretty cheap! The most expensive part about this party favor would be the glass jars.
